So for me to qualify as a responder, I must have a priori experience of having lifted/moved 6.5 million tons of stone? That my eyes must have witnessed such an action? Ok, so if head off to the local quarry and sit by for 5-6 years, maybe even a decade, only then can I return to this discussion as qualified to have input?
Again, why are you only referencing the GP? Do you think Menkaure's /\ is small? What's the difference on how he got his stones 'up there' and the GP? Does height above ground make stones heavier?

With manpower and time, no problem whatsoever. Serious question: Are you aware of the average size of stones in the pyramids?

Irrelevant. The 1000 or so theories on how the stones got there are irrelevant. It is even much less important whether (or what type of) a ramp was used. Clearly the stone went from ground level to a level above the ground. The easiest way to do it is on an incline. They didn't levitate them. They didn't float them up on barges. The majority of stones don't require superhuman abilities nor tools to get them there.
A. If a ramp wasn't used, then how does not having used a ramp qualify a construction date / usurpation from an ancient race of people?
B. How does not finding the word 'ramp' qualify a construction date / usurpation from an ancient race of people?

No. I can't explain it, and I am not required to.
